Ayodhya Verdict latest news: 5 key issues that the court needs to
Now that the Ayodhya verdict is due to be pronounced, let us go over some key issues that needs to be addressed by the Allahabad High court:

1. It is being claimed by the Hindus that the disputed site was the birth place of Lord Rama. The court has to decided if it was really so.

2. The court is also to decide if a Hindu temple was demolished at the place where the Babri Masjid now stands. If yes, then when was it built?


3. It is also believed that a section of the Hindus placed the idols of Lord Rama in the mosque in the night of 23rd December, 1949. The court needs to authenticate the facts in this regard as well.


4. From the legal point of view purely, a few issues need to be addressed as well. For e.g. if the claim is time barred or not.


5. The court needs to make a firm decision on the status of the disputed site (both the outer courtyard and the inner site). Who is the rightful owner of the disputed land- Hindus or Muslims?

As the court reads out the verdict, we await the public announcement of the honourable judgement which is likely to come out at around 5 pm.



Sixty years after it first went to court, the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court has pronounced verdict on the Ayodhya title suit.

Senior advocate and BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad emerged from court today to say that the three-judge bench had ruled in a majority judgement 2:1, that one-third part of the disputed land should be given to the  Sunni Waqf Board, one-third to the Nirmohi Akhara and one-third to the party for 'Ram Lalla'. Prasad represents one of the litigants.

Ravi Shankar Prasad claimed the court had ruled that the place where the idol of Ram was kept was the birthplace of the deity and the idols should not removed. (Read: Ayodhya dispute timeline)

Prasad claimed that the court had asked for a status quo for three months and in that time the litigants had to decide how to split the party.

Litigants emerged from the courtroom with copies of the judgment and there has been chaos outside the Lucknow court ever since.

The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court comprising Justice S U Khan, Justice Sudhir Agarwal and Justice D V Sharma, delivered the judgement today. (Watch: The background to the Ayodhya dispute)

The dispute at hand is about whether the 2.7 acres of disputed land on which the Babri Masjid stood before it was demolished on December 6, 1992, belongs to the Sunni Central Waqf Board or to the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha.

It has been a protracted legal battle, and people across the country have spoken in one voice on the need to maintain peace and harmony irrespective of the verdict.

As the court reads out the verdict , we await the public announcement of the honourable judgement which is likely to come out at around 5 pm.




Then, 150,000 Kar Sevaks, or volunteers, followed LK Advani and other leaders of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party to Ayodhya, where they destroyed the Babri Mosque and electrified Indian politics for the two decades which followed.
In the immediate aftermath, riots claimed more than 2,000 lives in cities throughout India. In Mumbai, Islamic terrorists killed more than 250 people in a series of bombings believed to have been in retaliation for Muslim deaths in the post-Ayodhya riots.

Riots flared again in Gujarat in 2002 after Muslims burned alive 59 Hindus they believed were returning from desecrating the mosque at Ayodhya. More than a thousand people were killed in riots throughout the state.
Today, more than 200,000 troops have been deployed in Northern India to prevent similar violence after the expected High Court ruling on who owns the site at Ayodhya, the Muslim Central Sunni Waqf Board, or a Hindu organisation that wants to build a temple to Lord Rama on the plot of the former mosque.
The dispute dates back to 1853, more than 300 years after the mosque was built by one of Emperor Babur's generals following their defeat of a local Hindu king.
According to Hindu campaigners, Lord Rama, one of their most revered deities, was born on the site, and an 11th Century Ram temple stood there until it was destroyed by troops loyal to Babur, the Muslim conqueror and India's first Mughal emperor. The general, Mir Baqi, named the mosque in his emperor's honour, but it became more commonly known as 'Masjid -i-Janmasthan' – Mosque of the Birthplace – in acknowledgement of Rama's birth there.
Since the first Hindu-Muslim clash was recorded over the issue in 1853, there have been intermittent protests and petitions by each side to establish their claim to the site.
The case which will be decided at Allahabad High Court today was launched in 1992 and seeks to determine the rightful title owner of the plot, whether the site was the birthplace of Lord Rama, and whether the mosque was built on the site of an ancient Hindu temple.
The ruling its politically explosive. If it finds in favour of Hindus who want to rebuild a Ram Temple on the site, it will alienate India's 140 million muslims, many of whom already feel marginalised in Indian society.
It will also cause anxiety over their property rights – most plots and mosque sites in India were once owned by Hindus.
More than the ruling itself, public reaction to it will be another test of how far India has travelled from its dark, communal recent history. The government is hoping those on either side of the divide now care more about their rising wealth and their stake in India's growth than settling ancient religious scores.

    If history is to be believed Md. Gauri, Allau- Din- Khilji attacked Indian Kingdoms, who were divided among themselves. Babbar Army & King Aurangzeb defeated Indian Kingdoms & could do as they pleased. If hindu kings could have outpowered them then things would have been differrent. thereafter the country was ruled by Brishers and as such divide & rule policy progressed & hindus could not be favoured with undo that had been done in the past, so the matter could not get momentum for more than three decades & surfaced after ouster of Britishers & getti independance.
